There’s no doubting the importance of Fabinho and many supporters have taken to Twitter to comment on how much he has been missed, particularly given the Brighton draw.
Our No.3 is arguably the best defensive midfielder in the league, if not world football, and will always be missed when he’s not in our team.
Several supporters bemoaned the absence of the Brazilian in yesterday’s draw and are praying for his speedy return to the squad from injury.
Here’s some of the best examples of this:
Joel Matip and Fabinho (if fit) go straight into the starting eleven against Atletico Madrid for me.

Fabinho’s more important than Salah and Van Dijk is for Liverpool

It’s often when a player is missing that they are best appreciated and this seems to be the case with the 28-year-old who always gets mentioned more in his absence, than when he plays.
The man coined ‘the hoover’ by his teammates has been much missed of late and we can only hope he makes a speedy recovery from his latest injury concern.
He plays in a specialist role and it’s always a big ask for the rest of the team to cover his position when he is missing and our performances always seem better when he’s on the pitch.
Our former Monaco midfielder is loved at Anfield and we need him back ASAP.
